True Patriot Love Foundation has been honoured to produce ambitious expeditions around the world since 2012. These unique adventures pair civilian business leaders with members of the Canadian Armed Forces, both veterans and currently serving members, to shed light on the challenges of veterans’ transition, reduce the stigma of mental health issues, and create lasting mentorship opportunities for soldier participants.
Through three challenging expeditions, True Patriot Love has directly impacted the lives of 30 veterans and currently serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces, and engaged 50 influential Canadian business leaders. The expeditions have also increased awareness of the unique challenges that surround Armed Forces members as they transition from military life to civilian life. Corporate Canada representation has included senior executives from the following organizations: Alignvest, Barclays, Bennett Jones, Callisto Capital, Canso Funds, CPPIB, DNA Capital, Gluskin Sheff, Goldman Sachs, Greensoil Investments, Kestrel Management, Longos, Medcan Clinic, Morgan Stanley, OMERS, Onex, Power Corporation, Scotiabank, SHOP.ca, Stingray Digital and Transcontinental.
In addition, through the support from TPL’s generous sponsors and partners, these expeditions have inspired support from over 3500 individual donors and corporations, and since its inaugural year, there has been a significant growth in peer-to-peer fundraising and sponsorship support.
